The leader of the army of Assyria approached Jerusalem and challenged the Jews with this,
“Do you not know what I and my fathers have done to all the peoples of other lands? Were the gods of the nations of those lands in any way able to deliver their lands out of my hand? Who was there among all the gods of those nations that my fathers utterly destroyed that could deliver his people from my hand, that your God should be able to deliver you from my hand?” (2 Chronicles 32:13-14).
Those gods could not deliver their nations from the Assyrians, because those gods were no gods.
However, the God of Judah, is not like those gods, because He lives and works for His people, and He takes great offense at being compared to mere pieces of wood and stone.
